In total, how long have you been racing?
About 15 years.

In those years how long have you been running for Team Orion?
I think it has been close to 6 years in total.

Track support from Joe Pillars is top notch. It’s nice having someone there to help you figure things out if you need it. The quality of Team Orion products is the best in the business.

All of the US Nationals are fun and memorable to me. It feels official and you get to see who is the fastest in the US.

What advice would you give to new up and coming drivers?
Take it serious, practice a lot. It’s a fine balance of trying too hard and burning yourself out and at the same time keeping things in perspective so you can continue to improve.
